Close window button (destructive) placed too close to non-destructive actions (File, Edit, ...)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: light-themes

In the previously used themes, the destructive window-level actions were placed on the opposite side of the screen to common non-destructive actions (Menus: File/Edit/View...).

Ideally destructive actions should be placed such that they have adequate guard space to separate them from frequently-used mouse input hot spots. (Ideally the close button should be guarded/spaced away from minimise and maximum actions aswell).

Closing a window is really tougher now :(
